county, stopped over night in this city
one night last week on his way home,
having in charge J. SerreU, an aged in

dition of the asylum at Norfolk no more
inmates could be accommodated. Ser
rett's insanity was first noticed about a
year ago when he was taken to Norfolk
for treatment and after a short time was
sent to his home, a cure having thought
to have been effected, but recently he
became dangerous and was again taken
to the asylum with the above results.'
C- W. Allen, deputy sheriff at Red
Oak, la., -was in the city Saturday on his
way to Norfolk having in his charge
James Lowe, an insane man, who. had
formerly been in the asylum and had
improved somewhat and gone east;
Thursday night he became dangerous
and unmanageable until caught with a
lasso and hobbled. Mr. Allen says he
has had experience with a good many
crazy people but he never before saw
one that didn't have some particular
hobby or other; Lowe seemed to have
been acquainted with some of the older
settlers here; he asked concerning J. P.
Becker and E. J. Baker.

sibility they get elected to the offices in

they will not disgrace the party that
supports them. It may seem a little out
of place in the republican Jocrxax to

our advice, and some of the more can

they are backward (as ia naturally the
case) crowd them forward. Don't

The meeting Monday evening was well
attended, as usual.
The main speeches of the evening were
by J. M. Macfarland, Esq., and Carl
Kramer,- who dwelt at length, on the
issues between the parties.
Macfarland started out by saying that
he had just come from the democratic
headquarters and that having but a very
few present, they sent out a committee
to visit the saloons and. call the party in,
as many of them were to be found on
one aide or the other of the bar.
Mac began his speech by referring to
R Q. Mills, the author of what is virtu
ally the democratic platform in this
campaign, the Mills bill, as a man who
fought four years against the 'govern
ment and said the only apology the
republican party had to make was that
such men had not been hanged for their
treason. The bill through' which the
south seeks, to cripple the business in
terests of the north and build up the
scuth is a -rebel scheme and is a piece
with all the rest'
Mac compared the candidates Harri
son and Cleveland, saying of the latter'
that his record as a man is so disgusting
that it is hardly respectable to talk
about it, while there is absolutely no
objection to Harrison. Thurman, born
in Virginia, was brought up to believe
that slavery was a divine institution, and
that slaves and "poor, white trash" as
the working people of the south were
called in slave times, should work for
just about nothing at all, and that belief
still clings to Mr. Thurman. Morton is
a man of very generous disposition. In
the time of famine in Ireland he gave
$50,000 worth of provisions' to the starv
ing, doing his best to keep his name
from the public. To the sufferers from
yellow fever ho lately contributed- $12,
000, and to the very people who will
turn around and count away from him
the electoral vote of Florida, where it is
well known that republicans are twice
the number of democrats. He declared
his belief that four years ago Blaine was
elected president hut was counted out,
and asserted that if the republicans
were victors this time they would cer
tainly see to it that every man who was
entitled to vote should have his right
respected and his vote counted. This
sentiment received cheer after cheer.
He charged that democracy's not the
rule of the people, giving instances to
show that this is the fact In the dis
cussion of the Mills bill in congress a
republican offered a proposition to ex
clude from importation the product of
foreign, convict labor. The motion was
sustained by republicans, but every
democrat present voted against it. He
thought if Randall, the tariff democrat,
had been present, he would have voted
with the republicans.
Mac drew a picture of the prosperity
this country had attained to under pro
tection, noting the wonderful strides
made in the last twenty-years, and said
that the American system of protection
was to be regarded as national and not
sectional, suited to the products of ev
ery state the republican party believed
in justice to all interests, the sugar and
rice of the south and the flax and wool
of the north. What is wanted is the
establishment of factories all over tho
country, the building up of self-supporting,
prosperous communities, making
greater demand for lands, houses,
schools, churches, stores, etc., otc.
The republican party is the party of
progress,- and has shown itself through
all its -history, devoted to the good of
the country, and, as in the past, so will
she be found in the future.
Mr. Kramer said that our education is
such tfiat it is becoming we should be
charitable with each other as to politi
cal opinions, and try to look fairly at
those of our opponents. In the times of
Jefferson and 'Jackson, the democracy
doubtless did great things, but from the
time we know it it cannot receive our
approval. From its advocacy of slavery
as a divine institution, its record, as a
party, against the vigorous prosecution
of the war to suppress the rebellion, its
sympathy with the rebels,, its opposition
to the resumption of specie payment,
etc., it has been a party of opposition
merely, while the. republican party has
always been progressive. He referred
to the campaign of four years ago, to the
promises of the democratic party then
made as to civil service reform and econ
omy and said that the only reform visi
ble was that our expenses under Cleve
land were $96,000,000 more than for a
like term under Arthur. This is reform
with a vengeance.
He believed in the soundness of the
saying that in war if yon can find out
what your enemy really desires you to
do, it Is a good plan for yon to do the
opposite. In this campaign it is evident
to every intelligent man that England
is exceedingly anxious to have Cleve
land elected and the Mills bill passed,
and there is.no doubt but this would be
favorable to the manufacturing and
other business interests in that country.
Seeing that this is the case, every pa
triot should consider the situation cool
ly, and cast his ballot for the protection
of American labor and interests, rather
than for the furtherance of English
Mr. Kramer quoted Bismarck's well
known reference to the American sys
tem of protection, in which he advocat
ed a similar system for adoption by
Germany, believing that the progress of
the United States and her great ability
shown in putting down the rebellion and
conserving the interests of the nation
had been due to the protective tariff.
He said that this was the deliberate,

His main reason for being a republi
can is that the great party, actuated by
motives of patriotismjabors for the good
of the whole country, and not merely
for .a section, as is done by the democ
racy in the advocacy of the Mills bill.
Republicans have 'never claimed abso
lute perfection for any tariff schedule,
but they always have meant and . do
mean that any schedule they do adopt
shall be as near to absolute justice and
fairness as Is attainable between sections
and concerning conflicting business in
terests. What is needed for the United
States and every portion of it is pro
tection to the men who labor, from the
unnecessary competition of the poorly
paid working men of the old country,
no one industry discriminated against,
but all sustained and fostered; the free
importation of .such things as our peo
ple may want and cannot produce here,
tea, coffee, quinine and the like.'
Carl closed with an eloquent burst of
indignation saying' in substance that
after 'four years of Cleveland, the people
would give the reins of government into
the hands of a man who wouldn't go
fishing on Decoration day, no matter
how much he might be in need of brain
food; a man of intelligence knowing well
the needs of the country, and a man who
has always lived a-pure life.

The farmers of Nebraska are awak
ening to the importance of seeding down
some of their land to tame grasses. Once
there may have, been some question as to
the successful growth of "the tame grass
es, but that has long since passed, and
there is now no doubt with those who
know how to get good seed. Mr. Wins
low tells us a little of his experience on
forty acres of the farm he bought of Mr.
Senecal. He put clover with oats, los
ing no crop. This year, he .had 225
bushels of seed and afterwards, cut a ton
and a half to the acre of hay. He tells us
that not only his own, but many another
field of red clover, as well as timothy
that he has seen in the state, look as
well as any he ever saw anywhere. No
doubt about successfully raising .these
grasses as well as blue grass and white
clover. He tells us of a Mr. Leach in
Madison county, who for years has had
a pasture of clover; another item show
ing the great value of clover and timothy
for fall pasture and fatting purposes:
Dan'I Graves, near Arborville, York
county, last year put a hundred two-
years-old steers (after weighing them)
into a pasture the first of September,
keeping them there till December- 1st,
when it was ascertained that, in the
ninety days, they had gained an aver
age of two pounds a day each. Those
who have fenced pastures find that. the
wild grass must be supplanted by the
tame, and the sooner every fanner be
gins to rotate crops, giving a goodly
share of his older land to clover and
timothy, Nebraska will be better off.
